Really liked the rooms....clean, spacious, and pleasantly outfitted. Good wi-fi and TV. The view from our room was only a rooftop and mechanical things, but maybe if you ask, they would put you in a room with a view of the lake or town. It was not an issue for us as we were out except for sleeping. Beds and...

only complaint is they have NO dressers in rooms for you to put your clothes away, you have to either hang or live out of your suitcase, which I found very strange. The view was amazing, the walkway along the lake was very nice. close to lots of places to eat and drink.

The hotel is in a good location next to the waterside and a quirky little pier. The room I have is very modern and very well maintained BUT the view is depressing at best and I think the only thing missing from this room is somewhere to hitch a noose. There is nothing but a flat roof. Under normal circumstances...

Made a weekend out of saturday's Ti-Cats game & wanted to stay somewhere on the Lake. Very happy with the location for our game day as it was very easy to get to the game. Location was also great for the numerous restaurant options within walking distance. We knew there would be renovations ongoing after reading some reviews; so that...

Wanted a hotel close to the lake front, this one fit the bill on many levels. Great downtown location within walking distance to many restaurants, very comfortable updated rooms (nice furniture), like the in-room frig/microwave, many plugs to charge electronics, free parking and breakfast. With the active renovation of the rooms there was a fair amount of smudged elevator doors,...

My sister was staying at the hotel and we dined in the hotel restaurant. The rooms are nice and clean and the view is amazing over looking Lake Ontario and Spencer Smith Park.
